We provide comprehensive resources for people of all ages  to
enjoy the natural world in the Agloe area.

Our Goals


We aim to educate the members of our community about issues facing the natural world around us today and ways that we can preserve it.



Through local, statewide, and federal efforts our nature center has mobilized the community to ensure that the natural beauty that surrounds us is with us for years to come.



Through our ongoing education programs and outreach efforts, as well as fun events throughout the year, we at the center are excited to create opportunities for our community to interact with each other.


Climb trees, race through meadows, catch frogs and explore the Caves Valley woodlands. At Irvine, nature activities are synonymous with childhood in summer – we engage children using outdoor fun to create pathways for lessons in nature and ecology.


Agloe Nature Center has three cache boxes on its grounds. Can you find them all? All you need is a GPS (or a smartphone with the free Geocaching app) and a sense of adventure! (Don’t have one? Members can borrow ours at the reception desk.)

Our Work


Agloe Nature Center is proud to contribute to education in our community through two major initiatives: scholarships for local agricultural students, and public events that focus on modern issues facing our environmental Scholarships are awarded to area students or undergraduate students following an agricultural focused track.

Agloe Historic Farm

Our farm produces a wide variety of products that are either sold to businesses or direct to the consumer. We have over 10 acres of farmland that includes orchards, produce, chicken coops, and a stable. We also offer a farm incubator for up and coming farmers to learn the trade in a supportive environment. Products made from our farm directly fund scholarships for this incubator project.

Nature Trails and Fishing

We provide more than 100 program sessions annually to 5,000 children and adults. We also welcome visitors to explore our 80 acres of woodlands, wetlands and meadows; enjoy our resident animals; and our interactive exhibit hall free of charge. Agloe has an abundance of opportunities for schools, families, and other members of our community to enjoy nature in its native state.

No Child Left Inside

We are proud to be a member of the No Child Left Inside movement, which aims to bring children connected back to nature. While we proudly offer classes and workshops to learn about nature in a hands on way, we also offer dozens of acres of land specifically dedicated to unstructured play for people of all ages. This approach ensures that imagination and connection to the land is fostered.
